Our Candle Picks for a Spring Refresh

The perfect home fragrance has the power to invigorate your senses, calm your mind, and improve your mood. Check out our candle picks for a spring refresh!

We’ve selected our favorite candle for each scent type so you can set the scene for a fantastic spring:

Fresh & Clean: Linen

Best For: pretending you did laundry today 🧺

Nothing evokes that “spring cleaning” mood quite like the scent of fresh laundry. This fragrance from Nest is balanced with white orchid and apple blossom to evoke a sunny springtime day.

Calm & Relaxing: Chamomile Lavender

Best For: soaking in a bubble bath 🛀

Lavender and chamomile are two of the most relaxing fragrances ever, so it’s a no-brainer to use them for a calming environment. This soothing scent from Lafco adds depth with bergamot, eucalyptus, patchouli, sage, and rosemary.

Invigorating & Uplifting: Santorini

Best For: a motivation boost 👍

This mood-elevating candle from Antica Farmacista starts with vibrant top notes of Italian bergamot, sweet verbena, and fresh vetiver and finishes off with a subtly sweet base that blends rosewood, sandalwood, and cardamom.

Fruity & Citrusy: Sicilian Tangerine

Best For: when you’re craving sorbet 🍊

Nest describes this candle as “mouthwatering,” and we can’t help but agree. Juicy tangerine, sunny bergamot, exotic mango, and tart passionfruit combine for a delightfully fruity fragrance.

Exotic & Sultry: Rose Noir & Oud

Best For: date nights ❤️‍

This sensuous candle from Nest blends the essence of Egyptian rose with the smoky scents of oud, incense, and patchouli. It’s rounded off with the intriguing fragrance of black leather.

Simple & Sophisticated: Acqua

Best For: impressing guests 🤩

Not everyone wants to be overwhelmed with scent! If you’re looking for a candle that’s a bit more understated, look no further than this one from Antica Farmacista. It’s light and sheer, with just enough sweet musk and marine notes to delight without being overbearing.

Feminine & Floral: Duchess Peony

Best For: girls’ night 💅

Don’t have a vase of fresh flowers? No problem! This delicate scent from Lafco evokes a bouquet of peony, rose, and camellia accented with cassis berries. A powdery floral musk finishes off the feminine vibe.

Breezy & Coastal: Ocean Mist & Sea Salt

Best For: dreaming of a beach vacation 🏖️

Nest’s love letter to the coast adds soothing white tea and coconut to the refreshing essences of ocean mist and sea salt. No sunscreen required (and no sand getting everywhere)!

Earthy & Woodsy: Sage & Walnut

Best For: a quiet night in 📚

Described by Lafco as “timeless,” this candle features depths of sandalwood, oud, and guaiac woods—but first, sweet orange burns away to reveal star anise, walnut, and juniper sage.

Comforting & Cozy: Retreat

Best For: creating a serene haven 😌

Inspired by a peaceful sanctuary, Lafco’s scent blends matcha green tea and maté leaves with mint and ginger before giving way to clary sage and palo santo wood.

Helpful Hints

Can’t choose? Here’s some more info on each of the brands we’ve featured here:

Nest scents are more classic and straightforward—they prefer to stick with what’s tried-and-true (and they’ve mastered it). If you prefer simpler fragrances that aren’t as likely to overwhelm the senses, Nest is the way to go. | Shop All Nest

Lafco scents, on the other hand, are inspired by specific rooms or scenes, so they use more fragrance notes to create more complex aromas. It’s fun to browse their candles and see where their inspiration came from! | Shop All Lafco

Antica Farmacista makes most of their scents in bath-and-body form, too. Try your favorite candle as a body wash or lotion! | Shop All Antica Farmacista
